This nurturing introductory group focuses on the development of sound stroke mechanics. This group is for those swimmers who are looking for a year-round program to help develop the basic strokes needed to become a competitive swimmer. Swimmers should not have fear of the water and should be able to complete multiple laps (while wearing fins) doing basic freestyle motion. No instructor is in the water. So if your child cannot swim multiple laps on his/her own, then please see the information on our Swim School Lesson Program.
